Established after the success of the Cultural and Creative Industries Summit held in September 2021, the South Yorkshire Cultural and Creative Industries Network has been established to offer a collaborative, supportive and inspiring forum for creative practitioners across arts, theatre, TV, film, publishing, design, music and much more.

Organised by Showroom Workstation and the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA), the network will host a programme of ten events across venues in South Yorkshire. It is designed to help nurture talent to further boost the sector and the important part it plays in the regional economy.

The very first South Yorkshire Cultural & Creative Industries Network event is set to take place at Doncaster’s Danum Gallery, Library and Museum on Thursday 21 October. The free open event will feature an inspiring panel discussion about the South Yorkshire cultural and creative sector, highlighting recent work and ambitions for the future.

Alongside a panel of speakers, there will also be a Q&A session and a chance for attendees to showcase their creative ideas and successes with the group via a short presentation.


Hosted by Olivia Jones, Creative Director at Doncopolitan, the session will include a panel discussion highlighting recent work and ambitions for the future of the culture and creative industries sector.

The panel will include representatives from exciting new creative organisations across the region, including:

  • Mike Stubbs, Creative Producer at Doncaster Creates. Mike is an artist and curator, encompassing a range of arts and media practice. His artwork, management and advocacy have been internationally acknowledged.

  • Lucy Robertshaw, Assistant Director of Darts, a Doncaster-based participatory arts charity. Lucy has over twenty years’ experience of developing, managing and evaluating creative projects and oversees the organisation’s work with adults.
